Chicharito again misses a penalty; Last minute raffle for Galaxy rescue

For the second week in a row, Mexico’s Javier Hernández failed to take a penalty, this time against Nashville SC, but the Galaxy managed to save a 1-1 draw in the last minute of the match at Geodis Park, thanks to a goal from the penalty spot by Riqui Puig.

The Los Angeles team set the pace of the game and dominated possession in the first half. He had, at least, a few dangerous arrivals towards the opposing goal, but he lacks strength in front of goal.

In one of the dangerous chances generated by the hosts, Hany Mukhtar tried to finish the goal with his right leg and the referee scored a handball in the area of ​​Derrick Williams in an attempt to deflect the ball, the foul was confirmed by VAR and Mukhtar, in charge of shooting from the penalty area, gave Nashville the lead in the 28th minute.

For the complementary part, the team of Greg Vanney continued to pressure the attack in search of equalizer. The Galaxy had an unbeatable chance, Hernández, their star striker was fouled in the box in Shaquel Moore, again the maximum penalty was given and the same Mexican was in charge of going in search of the Galaxy’s first entry, however, goalkeeper Joe Willis stopped the shot from Chicharito, who missed a penalty for the second consecutive week. The day before, the Mexican had failed to score against Sporting Kansas City.

The Galaxy were desperate for an equalizer at Geodis Park, but the tone of the game, the lack of definition in front of the rivals’ goal, also marked the evolution of the second half. It looked like the hosts were left with the win, but in compensation a handball was scored inside the box by Walker Zimmerman (sent off on seeing the second yellow card). Again confirmed the fault by the VAR, the Spaniard Riqui Puig scored at 90’+9′ and the Angelenos saved the draw 1-1.
